“I want to always have people better than them in a way, so that they feel like they want to be there and they want to keep on working”

— Rember Orellana

In this excellent interview Jake and Rember will be touching on art and tattoo design for the first half of the interview; how to approach color and texture, thoughts on realism, and introducing more of the value scale. In the second half they go over more of the business side of things: Running a tattoo studio, shop ethics, apprentice morale, and helping your artists feel like they’re part of the shop instead of just working there.
